With North Korea in the news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-41078187 at the moment, following another missile test, we are all wondering where this escalating international situation will go next.

Posted by Jill Shearer on Friday, September 4, 2015, In : Mundane Astrology 
Lunations often echo the themes of our world powerfully. The unfolding human tragedy of the exodus from war-torn Syria was encapsulated this week in the heartbreaking image of the tiny body of a three-year-old Syrian boy, Aylan Kurdi, washed up on a Turkish beach.

Incredibly, this most distant of our planets has completed less than a third of its orbit since it was dis...
